In this work, we propose a framework for multimodal data fusion at decision level under a multilayer hierarchical ensemble learning architecture. The architecture provides a generative discriminative model for probability density estimations and decreases the entropy of the data throughout the vector spaces. The architecture is implemented for human motion detection problem, where the motion analysis problem is formulated as a multi-class classification problem on audio-visual data. The vector space transformations are analyzed by the investigation of probability density and entropy transitions of data across the levels. The architecture provides an efficient sensor fusion framework for the robotics research, object classification, target detection and tracking applications.


Hierarchical distance learning by stacking nearest neighbor classifiers
Ozay, Mete; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2016-05-01)
We propose a two-layer decision fusion technique, called Fuzzy Stacked Generalization (FSG) which establishes a hierarchical distance learning architecture. At the base-layer of an FSG, fuzzy k-NN classifiers receive different feature sets each of which is extracted from the same dataset to gain multiple views of the dataset At the meta-layer, first, a fusion space is constructed by aggregating decision spaces of all the base-layer classifiers. Then, a fuzzy k-NN classifier is trained in the fusion space by...
Multi-modal video event recognition based on association rules and decision fusion
Guder, Mennan; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan (2018-02-01)
In this paper, we propose a multi-modal event recognition framework based on the integration of feature fusion, deep learning, scene classification and decision fusion. Frames, shots, and scenes are identified through the video decomposition process. Events are modeled utilizing features of and relations between the physical video parts. Event modeling is achieved through visual concept learning, scene segmentation and association rule mining. Visual concept learning is employed to reveal the semantic gap b...
Kernel probabilistic distance clustering algorithms
Özkan, Dilay; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2022-7)
Clustering is an unsupervised learning method that groups data considering the similarities between objects (data points). Probabilistic Distance Clustering (PDC) is a soft clustering approach based on some principles. Instead of directly assigning an object to a cluster, it assigns them to clusters with a membership probability. PDC is a simple yet effective clustering algorithm that performs well on spherical-shaped and linearly separable data sets. Traditional clustering algorithms fail when the data ...
Transformation of conceptual models to executable High Level Architecture federation models
Özhan, Gürkan; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (Springer, 2015-01-01)
In this chapter, we present a formal, declarative, and visual model transformation methodology to map a domain conceptual model (CM) to a distributed simulation architecture model (DSAM). The approach adheres to the principles of model-driven engineering (MDE). A two-phased automatic transformation strategy is delineated to translate a field artillery conceptual model (ACM) into a high-level architecture (HLA) federation architecture model (FAM). The produced model is then compiled by the code generator to ...
Orchestra: rapid collaborative sharing of dynamic data
Ives, Zachary; Khandelwal, Nitin; Kapur, Aneesh; Çakır, Murat Perit (null; 2005-01-04)
Conventional data integration techniques employ a “top-down” design philosophy, starting by assessing requirements and defining a global schema, and then mapping data sources to that schema. This works well if the problem domain is well-understood and relatively static, as with enterprise data. However, it is fundamentally mismatched with the “bottom-up” model of scientific data sharing, in which new data needs to be rapidly developed, published, and then assessed, filtered, and revised by others. We addres...
